The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is considered one of the most complex joints in the body. It plays an important role in dental occlusion and the neuromuscular system. However, the number of patients presenting with dysfunction of the TMJ is increasing. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are the most common non-dental cause of facial pain, and it has been estimated that around half of the population has at least one sign of TMD. Understanding the aetiology, symptoms, and classification of TMD will help physiotherapists better identify and manage these patients in clinical practice.
This course aims to introduce the aetiology, symptoms and clinical classifications of temporomandibular disorders.
